The Path of Freedom, or Vimuttimagga in Pali, is a revered Buddhist meditation manual, believed to be written by the Arahant Upatissa around the 1st or 2nd century CE. Though the original Pali or Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit text is lost, the work survives through a 6th-century Chinese translation.

The Vimuttimagga is known for its practical guidance on meditation, emphasizing traditional meditation objects. It is considered less analytical and more practical compared to the Visuddhimagga, another influential meditation manual. Both texts, however, hold significant value in Theravada Buddhist practice.
